Nampa, Idaho - December 19, 2023 - An excerpt from the "Kevin" Chapter: So many analogies came to mind as I watched Kevin speak from a stage that had showcased singers and dancers the night before, yet he was no actor. His tall frame, silver hair, and tanned face made him look the part, but it was his command of the moment that made me think, 'This guy's the real deal.'

I found out early in life that good people bring you happiness while not-so-good people teach you lessons, but this book focuses on the great ones who give you lasting memories.
In this collection of personal and lyrical short stories, you will learn how a nine-year-old girl, a pro football legend, a Fortune 500 CEO, a feisty old man, a country boy, a Puerto Rican logistics manager, a new hire from Santa Barbara, a college buddy, and a high school gym teacher taught me about dignity, compassion, loyalty, charisma, humility, selflessness, and so much more.
These non-fiction reflections combine elements of humor, poetry, essay, and memoir and serve as reminders that we are truly a result of what we learn from others. I extend my deepest appreciation and gratitude to everyone mentioned in this book as well as to those who will be honored in subsequent compilations. 💖💖💖
